Sony's "Vaio Media Integrated Server" software is a program that allows you to share media over a home network. It is in release version 6.0, as of December 2010.

Compatibility and License

Sony Vaio Media Integrated Server is compatible with all versions of Windows XP and with Windows Vista Home, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate editions. According to the licensing agreement, you may connect up to five computers or devices to the media server for each installed copy of the program.


The Vaio Media Integrated Server sets up your computer as a network host for media files, including pictures, video and music. Other computers or devices, such as PS3, may browse the contents of your media files and stream content over a network. Computers and devices must be granted access individually through the Media Integrated Server's interface.


Sony released an updated version of the software in 2007. The updated version added support for iTunes playlists, allowing users to load their playlists in the media server to make the playlists accessible from remote devices.
